Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission – Experiencing delays on National Police Checks

The ACIC has contacted us today to make us aware that they are currently experiencing processing delays on National Police Checks being handled manually through the individual police jurisdictions. They are working with the police to reduce the backlogs and are currently experiencing some processing delays resulting in a number of checks falling outside of the 15 business day period. We understand that this is frustrating, especially if you need your check urgently. Our platform is linked directly to the police allowing us to automatically check for updates on your order every few minutes until the police finish their work. As soon as the results are finalised, we will email you to let you know they are available to download.

We apologise for any inconvenience this is causing and thank you for your patience. 

CVCheck, police agencies and the ACIC work together aiming to process 95% of police checks within 15 business days, noting that:
  • 70% of all checks are completed within 1 business day
  • 25% are completed within 10 business days as they've been referred to one or more police agencies because an individual’s name is similar to a person of interest.
  • 5% may take 15 business days or more (depending on the complexity of the check). For further information on ACIC delivery times click here.

* All turnaround times are estimated working times for Australian checks and are provided as a guide only. Turnaround times are based on our experience of the time taken for the majority of these checks to be delivered. However, CVCheck is reliant on third parties for supply of information, and in some cases those third parties may take longer to supply that information. Accordingly, CVCheck does not give any time guarantees for any checks or packages. It is CVCheck's policy and practice to keep you informed as much as possible if there are any unusual delays. Should an Australian National Police Check be delayed it may take several days to receive the result, and occasionally much longer. Read more about our delivery times here.
